How can I get my children’s father to pay?
January 11, 2013
My ex husband has left me with 4 children. The divorce agreement meant that he had to continue to pay for the children until they were out of full time education.
He married the policewoman that he ran off with and last year retired from the army as a Warrant Officer taking a large pay off. He has decided that he cannot get a job and so has stopped paying any maintenance.
However, with his pay off and money from his wife they have bought a large detached house. He has stated that he has no money to pay for the upkeep of the children.My eldest, a son of 22, is an auxiliary nurse, my daughter aged 21 is studying to join university. My third, a boy of 16, has just started an apprenticeship and the youngest is at school aged 12. I have two part time jobs as a school dinner lady and as a cleaner.
I cannot afford to keep the children fed and housed even with the help of benefit. How can I put pressure on the children’s father to pay his way rather than buy the children, computers?
